American Indie

All Time Greats
Far from the plastic glamour of Hollywood, the American Independent is an innovative and celebrated genre of filmmaking. Shoestring budgets are balanced by internationally-renowned stars, and the director’s creativity—away from the pressure of financiers, corporate sponsors and test audiences—is set free.



British Tastemakers

All Time Greats
For all the nay-sayers who pretentiously declare that the British cinema does not exist, we say—behold! The extraordinary talents of filmmakers such as Ken Loach, Peter Weir and Anthony Asquith created a cinema which was subtle in its representation of a national identity, but was nonetheless quintessentially British.


Cannes Favourites

All Time Greats
Ah, Cannes: the king of festivals. Here we have collected a choice list of celluloid wonders which wowed at Cannes, from such esteemed filmic iconoclasts as Michael Haneke, Abbas Kiarostami and the Brothers Dardenne. Feast your eyes on these fine films...

Classic French Cinema

All Time Greats
France is the birthplace of cinema, and this list of classics will leave you basking in the beauty of the moving image. From Renoir to Cocteau, Tati to Bresson, classic French cinema represents the very foundation of modern filmmaking.

Classic Italian Cinema

All Time Greats
Whether it is a visual representation of rich marinara sauce or imbued with a delicacy akin to fresh ricotta, the classic Italian cinema of Rossellini, de Sica et al will satiate any appetite. Take a journey to Italy, with some of the cinema’s finest artists.

Cult Cinema

All Time Greats
Go-go dancing, big-breasted betties; underground-dwelling social pariahs; wacked-out meditations on the blackly hilarious banality of life. This collection of crazy films is not everybody’s cup of tea, but that’s the point: lace up your white sneakers, drink the Kool Aid and give in to this cult of kooky cinema.
